I don’t mean to pick on Hawaii, but voters there seriously need to up their game when it comes to picking Senators. I already wrote this week about Sen. Mazie Hirono, who appeared gobsmacked to learn that people who sneak into the US illegally are arrested not because President Trump is mean but because it’s a violation of federal law to sneak into the US illegally (even after it was explained to her twice, with the federal statute cited, her confused response was reminiscent of the “These go to 11” scene in “This Is Spinal Tap.”)
And now, her fellow Democratic Senator from Hawaii, Brian Schatz, has tweeted something equally coco-nutty. After President Trump’s rally in Tampa, where the crowd mocked the relentlessly anti-Trump media in the hall by chanting, “CNN s***ks,” Schatz tweeted that Democrats “have no equivalent to the dark carnival that is a Trump rally. This is not a thing on the left. We just argue about healthcare and climate and sometimes relitigate 2016 but we are not actually out of our minds.”
Ironically, I think that tweet just might prove he’s out of his mind. Maybe he should run that claim past Rep. Steve Scalise, who was nearly shot to death at a charity baseball practice by a homicidally-enraged Bernie Bro, should they happen to share an elevator. I just hope Maxine Waters isn’t on there with them, or they won’t be able to talk over her unhinged rants about harassing everyone associated with Trump.
Maybe the problem with the Democrats being unable to see their own side’s insanity is that the lunatics have been running the asylum so long that crazy looks like sane to them.
Since I already linked this week to Breitbart’s by-no-means comprehensive list of 538 instances of leftists attacking, threatening or attempting to silence and intimidate people on the right, I’ll save Sen. Schatz some time by linking to the Daily Caller’s Cliff’s Notes version of just 22 of the more infamous cases.
PS to Sen. Schatz: if you need one more fresh example of what Democrats who are “actually out of their minds” look like, check out this story about a Taunton, Massachusetts, woman arrested for vandalism, assault with a dangerous weapon and other charges. She allegedly became enraged while driving when she saw a car with a Trump bumper sticker and gave chase, yelling at the driver. When he stopped to see what her problem was, she called him a racist and other names, smashed her car into the side of his car, then took off. She’s pleading not guilty, I have to assume by reason of insanity.
If I were a betting man, I’d put up a thousand dollars that her car has a “Visualize World Peace” bumper sticker on it.
